Set my Spirit Free at Midnite....another recent poem of mine.


Set my Spirit Free
release my capture
at Midnight......
free my reins
let me run wild
with abandon
and untamed
in moonlights glow....

Calling to the Universe
Independent
to roam
to wherever
my spirit seeks
to the calling
of the wild....

To carry
no one's
heavy burdens
upon my back
ever again....
for I've spent
a lifetime
with the weight
and whip
upon me....
No more
will I bow down
nor follow
someone else's directions.....
for my path
is now free
to run wild
to roam......
Clearly I see
but I feel to know.....
for the good red road
is now calling me
to mother earth
and to father sky.....

I now seek
the path to home
where I've always belonged....

Set my Spirit free
at midnight
beckoning me
to Freedoms shores
and to the call of the wild.

Learning to Forgive....a profound and heartfelt video

I watched this video from youtube at my blog friends Yang Jun's Blog. I thank him for helping me to work on myself by his posting this video...now I pass it on to others in hopes of us all working on healing our wounds from the past. This video is based on the last words in the entry of Mary Karen Reads journal before her death. She was killed in the Virginia Tech shootings.

Love and Blessings,

My first attempt at writing a poem in a year. "Strong Spirits Arise".......


I'm a "Rebel with a Cause"
no doubt about it
no hesitation
no pause...

I'm struggling
to keep the identity
of my Soul
if I don't save it
I'll never be "whole"
again...

These constant rules
and regulations
I try to follow them
but find these fools
who run the show never do
nor abide or respect
human dignity
or the "Golden Rules"....

Invalidate
intimidate
frustrate
so others
become too fearful
to speak up
so, on and on it goes
but the ones
with a strong Spirit
the ones
who "Know"
what's going on
don't hesitate
nor pause.....

But there are harsh punishments
for speaking up
for a cause
this is the chance you take
these are the choices you make
yes, the good seem punished
and the bad rewarded
for whatever reason
this is
it probably will always be....
but does this mean
"Monkey never hears"?
"Monkey never see's"?
blinded in fears?
walls built around the castle
closed in
and shedding their quiet tears...

But, alas continue on
Strong Spirits Arise
and Stand Tall
for you know if you don't
they wait with sinister anticipation
to watch you crumble
to watch you fall
Joan of Arc knew it....
she knew it all along
but continue on
Spirits Arise
Spirits be Strong
even when you fall
Stand tall
Stand tall
